[9/22/11] Mahleket Hanikot Shotrim ’11 tour. Bottle at Rex Pizzeria in Malmo. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma has a bit of hay, a bit of maltiness and somewhat herbal hoppiness. Sweetish grainy flavor and a slightly drier finish with some bitterness. Light-medium-bodied.

IV, Cseh sörnapok, Budapest, üveges kiszerelés. Tükrös arany szín benne, nagy buborékokban és gyorsan leomló laza fehér hab. Illata malátás és lagymatag élesztő érződik. Íze malátás, élesztős, de a komló valahogy nincs olyan jól eltalálva, van valami főtt almás jellege a lecsengésének. Száraz, közepes testtel rendelkezik. Nem jött be túlzottan, de végül is meg lehet inni.

Pours nearly no head, the body is very light yellow. No much taste at all actually. Light bitter. Typical rusty lager aftertaste. Bad palate, watery and rusty.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2011
UPDATED: APR 7, 2011 Flat out bitter beer and I love it. Very fresh (mid-June 2011). Aroma is a more subtle flower/pepper/hers variety but the flavor is intensely bitter. Not so much bread, not such a huge body, a giganticaly grassy bitter flavor playground in your mouth. Good head and body, not so big, oily. From Piwoteka.

5 Crainy, a little dull, slight breadiness
3- Pale orange, large tight white head.
5 SImple full-bodied lager, a little plasticky.
2 Thinnish body, crisp carbonation. Finish quite simple - a little plasticky again, and then it’s nothing.
10 Fairly solid pale lager.

gold colour, this lager from Benesov, is sweet - bitter with bitter end, on tap you can have never ending nice foam, too hard for me, but good

Golden with a small white head. Aroma of herbal hops, grainy malt with a biscuit touch. Dry and hoppy flavour, medium bitter.

I had this at the Istanbul Restaurant in Trelleborg, Sweden. Is is available through Systembologet. It is a special order item. It is not in there catalog or on line. There is also a 1 case,(20 bottles), minimum order. Pours a golden bronze with a large foamy head. The head eventually goes to a thick lace and will be there to the end. One of those heads that mark on the side of the glass after every swallow. Aroma is a bit hop and floral with a bit of sweet. Flavor is hop, bit of caramel and spice. Crisp. Finish is a light bitter hop and alcohol. As far as a bottled Czech beer goes; it’s better than most. Overall it is just okay, nothing special. If you like Czech beer and have not tried it, I recommend you do so.
